And that, folks, is my look back at 2010. I’m planning some fun stuff for 2011 and am looking forward to getting back into the swing of Big Other-ing.

  1. Great list, Ryan. I’d never heard of The Lonely Polygamist, or Brady Udall, honestly. I just placed a reserve for it with my local library. Thanks for the recommendation. :)

    1. Thanks, Dawn! I appreciate you taking a look. Brady is great. I may be biased ’cause he was a mentor of mine, but I think you’ll enjoy it, and if you do his first novel and story collection are very good as well!
